What’s New in Transact 4.5?


Extraction | View Complete Extracted Value on the Test Extraction and Extraction Rule Configuration Screens

Ephesoft Transact offers extraction methods called “Paragraph Extraction” and “Table Extraction”. They are used to extract paragraphs and tables according to the configured rules. Once the rules are defined, you have the following options to check the extraction results:

For Paragraph Extraction:

  • Test Paragraph Extraction option on the Paragraph Extraction Rule Configuration screen
  • Test Extraction screen under the Document Types tab

For Table Extraction:

  • Test Table option on the Table Extraction Rule Configuration screen
  • Test Table Extraction Rule option on the Table Extraction Rules screen
  • Test Table option on the Tables screen
  • Test Extraction screen under the Document Types tab

Previously, in all cases the user was able to see only the first line of the extracted table or paragraph value, which made it difficult to confirm whether the data had been extracted in full.

In Ephesoft Transact v4.5.0.0, all Test Extraction screens adjust automatically to show the complete extracted value of the table or paragraph. If extracted value is larger than available screen area, a scroll bar will appear on the screen, which you can drag up and down to move through the data.

 

Paragraph Extraction Results

  • To check the results on the Paragraph Extraction Rule Configuration screen, simply click Test Paragraph Extraction.
